ANSI Opens Call for Nominations for 2004 Leadership and Service Awards

New York, Apr 21, 2004

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has announced the Call for Nominations for its 2004 Leadership and Service Awards.

Presented in conjunction with the ANSI Annual Conference and the U.S. Celebration of World Standards Day, the awards recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to voluntary consensus standardization and conformity assessment programs and have consistently demonstrated a commitment to their industry, their nation, and the enhancement of the global standards system.

This year’s Call for Nominations seeks the imaginative people with diverse backgrounds and perspectives that work in concert to develop real solutions to the needs of the standardization and conformity assessment community. According to ANSI president and CEO Mark W. Hurwitz, the ANSI annual awards program “is a long-standing tradition that recognizes outstanding achievements across the broad spectrum of industries and interest groups that comprise our community.”

Information detailing the nomination procedure, as well as information about the recipient selection process, is available by clicking on the graphic shown above. Information will be posted soon on ANSI Online (see Meetings and Events - Upcoming Featured Events).

Nominations are due by Friday, July 2, 2004 (5:00 pm Eastern).

Two new awards have been added to the program this year:

    Chairman’s Award
    The Chairman's Award honors outstanding accomplishments performed by any group or individual on behalf of ANSI or the ANSI Federation. Recipients are selected by the chairman of the ANSI Board of Directors in consultation with the Awards Committee; nominations are not required, though they will be considered. The award may be presented at any time.

    Next Generation Award
    The Next Generation Award honors an individual who has been engaged in standardization or conformity assessment activities for less than eight years and who has, during this time, demonstrated vision, leadership, dedication and significant contributions to his or her chosen field of activity.

Complete descriptions of all the awards are available in the Call for Nominations booklet and via ANSI Online (2004 ANSI Awards Program).

ANSI will honor the 2004 award recipients on Tuesday evening, October 12, at a banquet and ceremony to be held at the Marriott at Metro Center in downtown Washington, DC. For additional information on the awards ceremony and related World Standards Week 2004 events, please visit
